In today’s film newsgathering, the Winklevoss twins came to Hollywood through the film Bitcoin, the Newport Beach Film Festival announced the opening and Mutiny Pictures became a distributor.

PROJECT LAUNCH

The Winklevoss Twins – Cameron and Tyler – worked with Greg Silverman’s Stampede Ventures in the adaptation of the feature film “Bitcoin Billionaires,” the 2019 book by Ben Mezrich.

Jon Berg will also produce with Silverman and the twins, who became famous in Mezrich’s best-selling book “The Accidental Billionaires,” the basis for the film “The Social Network.” The brothers accused Mark Zuckerberg of working briefly for them and stealing part of their code to launch Facebook, which reached a $ 65 million settlement with the brothers.

“Bitcoin Billionaires” details the twin efforts to finance the Bitcoin payment processor, BitInstant. Mezrich also wrote “Bringing Down The House,” which was adapted into the film “21.” Stampede is supported by former Facebook CFO and co-owner San Francisco 49ers Gideon Yu. The news was first reported by the Deadline.

FILM FESTIVAL

The 21st Annual Newport Beach Film Festival will launch August 6 with Brown Brown’s world premiere “A Life of Endless Summers: The Bruce Brown Story” as the opening film, Variety has learned exclusively,

The festival, which was originally scheduled for late April, was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The screening will take place at The Lot on Fashion Island. “The Endless Summer” was released in 1966. Dana Brown is the oldest son of Bruce Brown.

“This film is a tribute to my father,” Dana Brown said. “Dad started the whole genre of action sports films. He broke the mold; he broke the rules; he opened the film category. There will never be another like him. We cannot think of a better fit for our world premiere than The Newport Beach Film Festival which places a strong focus on action sports programming and continually recognizes Father’s legacy in the Southern California community. “

Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, the festival said it would take extra precautions to ensure the health and safety of filmmakers and customers. In addition to adhering to California’s current social distance guidelines, each festival visitor will receive a contactless temperature check, sanitation stations will be placed throughout the room, the theater will be thoroughly cleaned after each screening and food will be served in disposable containers.
